that hurt romney is that you and rick santorum were helped by these super pacs and stayed in long enough that kind of bled romney dry, allowed you to attack him, to say these things that i said before and also depleted his campaign coffers. did the super pacs hurt republicans more than they helped them? >> i had one billionaire, a good friend and a person who's deeply passionate about --. >> stephen: great friend to have. billionaires are some of the best to have. >> i'd like to have ten or 15. romney had about 26. it turned out 26 billionaires beat one. this was a great revelation to us. (laughter) so i think romney --. >> stephen: sounds like a great reality show "billionaire fight." (laughter) >> we just had it, it was called the election. (cheers and applause) >> stephen: it's not going to get better than that. newt gingrich, thank you so much. speaker newt gingrich. the book is ,x e
pacs and kept the race open. they were the gingrich candidacy and his super pac and the santorum one. what it meant was that instead of wrapping thins up in february, romney waited, had all of these primaries where he was attacked and he ended up the primary season somewhat wounded because these republican super pacs had run really vicious ads against them and he was broke. now, if that hadn't happened, if we had not had super pacs romney would have raised money and the other candidates would not have. they raised millions themselves virtually. the millionaires and billionaires funded them. each of them had one billionaire that kept them in the race and if that hadn't happened they would have had no money to pay for gas in a car. they would have been out. >> you're saying the billionaires kept it going? >> absolutely. they kept them going for months in the way that the public never would have and they attacked, used the billionaire's money to attack romney. he had to spend his money to defend himself and raise a lot of money through his super pac to defend himself, but the result was
things, rick santorum saying whatever he said about blah people. so the party was saying this about black people, about brown people, self-deportation, these sort of things. when they're saying it about barack obama, black people and brown people read it as about themselves, that barack obama is not american enough, he's lazy, playing too much golf. >> john? >> the point i was going to jump off something toure said about president george w. bush. i remember during that campaign every day on the front page of the newspaper there was a picture of george bush hugging a black child, usually a very beautiful black child every day. and it got to the point where it was like what's he communicating? and the communication was, remember, his whole campaign was about compassionate conservatism. >> thank you so much. >>> next, say it ain't so, allen west throws in the towel and the comedy gods are very sad. stay with us. >> let's be very honest and let's put it in some military vernacular. if you're feeding a person a crap sandwich with a smile, it's still a crap sandwich and i think that's what you
with rick santorum for supremacy in that realm. rand paul, perhaps. the tea party was found by the ron and rand paul real conservatives, the guys who were disgusted at how george w. bush spent money before it devolved into people blaming obama for what bush did. then you'll have the moderates. i think jeb bush will be the leader in. guy who will say i'm the electable moderate. we tried going to the right wing way. ronald reagan wouldn't fit in with them. chris christie of course will be a part of that camp. >> immigration is going to be a real good test case. you'll see this divide between that brand of moderate republicans saying that immigration is an economic issue. that we need to bring in people with the skills that america needs to power the economy and on the other side, folks like steve king and michele bachmann who use those emotional appeals of they'll take your jobs, they're from another country and so on and so forth. how that plays out will be key to what the party becomes. >> john: you can't wi
